Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, (R-TX) Says Global Warming is Voodoo Science
Thank you for contacting me regarding global climate change. I welcome your thoughts and comments on this issue.
I believe any federal action affecting this matter should be based on sound scientific evidence* and a careful consideration of the economic and social costs involved. Lacking sound scientific evidence *, proposals such as the Kyoto treaty would place U.S. industries at a great competitive disadvantage in the global market place. We must act in a responsible way to clean our air and address the issue of global climate change while maintaining a level playing field for commerce. Please be assured that should relevant legislation come before the full Senate, I will consider it closely with your thoughts in mind.
Kay Bailey Hutchison
